To combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the entire state of Michigan is under a mandatory “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Executive Order.  Governor Whitmer signed executive order 2020-42, extending her prior “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order through the end of April. As with the prior order, Executive Order 2020-42 limits gatherings and travel and requires all workers who are not necessary to sustain or protect life to stay home. Executive Order 2020-42 also imposes more stringent limitations on stores to reduce foot traffic, slow the spread of the coronavirus, and save lives.  Please click the link to access Executive Order 2020-42 in its entirety.

WWTP Update

Wednesday, April 8, 2020

The Saline WWTP was in full compliance with all Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, And Energy (EGLE) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit regulations for the months of February and March of 2020. The most recent violations of the NPDES Permit occurred during mid-January of 2020. These violations were for total suspended solids and fecal coliform and were due to the heavy rainfall event of January 10-11 when 2.5 inches of rainfall were measured at the WWTP. The resultant flows at the WWTP were 5.03 million gallons on January 10 and 3.73 million gallons on January 11. The WWTP design flow is 1.81 million gallons per day.

Statement from the City of Saline City Health Official

Thursday, March 26, 2020

Thinking that only older people and those with underlying comorbidities are at highest risk makes the young people feel that they are not at risk. This is a great misunderstanding.

EVERYONE is at risk of catching and spreading the COVID-19 infection. This includes all ages. It includes YOU. Behave as if you may have the infection. Treat everyone else as if they may be infected.
